Stitch Fix #3

The postman came today while B was taking a nap and delivered my favorite package! As soon as I see that teal logo it's like Santa visited my front porch! For this package, I requested a cross body bag to my stylist. Also included were 2 tops, navy and burgundy, a scarf, and a denim … Continue reading Stitch Fix #3

Sleep Training a Toddler

After the hurdle of sleep training an infant, I just kind of assumed we were done. Forever. We started sleep training Blake at 4 months old and ever since then he's slept through the night with no regression.  Celebrating this success, I think Michael and I both thought that was it. We were done and the … Continue reading Sleep Training a Toddler

Product Review-Dinner Winner

Scrolling through my Facebook feed last week I noticed a picture a friend had posted of an interesting looking dinner plate for her child. I had to check it out and investigate it! And, oh, the awesomeness! Seriously genius for my very picky eater.  I flew over to Amazon, read the raving reviews, and ordered one … Continue reading Product Review-Dinner Winner

The Pressure Is On

"Self pressure is a mental expectation you have for yourself in the moment." Saw this quote in another blog recently (I've forgotten which) and it has stuck with me. I put a lot of pressure on myself in life. Which brings me stress, which breeds anxiety. Making me, at times, neurotic and crazy. Oh, my … Continue reading The Pressure Is On

Real Life Outside of Social Media

Do you let other people’s “reality” trick you into thinking that your life isn’t good enough or that you aren’t a great parent? I use the term “reality” in quotation marks because in social media terms, I feel as if we view family photos as reality. That we completely buy into the fact that the … Continue reading Real Life Outside of Social Media

Asthma

Sometimes when people ask about Blake being sick (or if he's sick AGAIN), I really exaggerate, and tell them he's been sick his whole life. Obviously untrue, but there are times when it just seems like his reality. He's been sick for almost a month. I thought it was 3 weeks but the doctor informed me today … Continue reading Asthma

Almost Two

Blake's 2nd birthday is coming up in 4 weeks.  I can't believe it.  This blog has been going for nearly 2 years! I remember starting it, and all of my new-mommy-emotions that flooded from my fingertips.  I haven't been the best at keeping it updated like I once did, but I do think about updating … Continue reading Almost Two

Thankful for Baby Signing

As parents, let's face it, we just aren't perfect.  As I look back on my parenting life so far there are many things I wish I had or had not done.  I wish I hadn't lost my temper when it was totally silly to do so. Like, the time Blake decided he wanted goldfish for … Continue reading Thankful for Baby Signing

Blake Led Weaning?

Yeah, sure, I'll give this Baby Led Weaning thing a shot. I just give him whole foods and let him have a go, right? Parenting fail. Cheese sandwich. Face smash. Something just doesn't seem or look right here. WHATEVER. *hashtag*idontknowwhatimdoing (Disclaimer: I do follow BLW blogs and instagrams and I have been reading up on … Continue reading Blake Led Weaning?

Jar Head

Jar Head Mom. That's what you can call me now.  Not in the "Get down, Marine!" kind of way.  Think baby food.The homemade baby food gig is not going well.  Maybe I'm an impatient person. Okay, no maybe.  I am.  I've stuck with the same foods like is suggested by everything I read, but he … Continue reading Jar Head
